spanish wells

December 1 – 3, 2012 Royal Island turned into just a brief overnight stop on our way to Spanish Wells. We were hoping for some fun snorkeling in the small, protected harbor, but the strong northeasterly winds had really disturbed the water’s clarity.

the abacos ~ marsh harbor to lynyard cay

November 28, 2012 The clear blues and greens of the water. It was exactly as Wil and I remembered it.
